With less than two weeks to go, all is going to plan and so far no drop-outs or changes to the planned line-up!

 

So barring any last minute changes, we have for you 18 varied Layouts, as always including nationally renown layouts and new exhibits from the Society and members making their debuts:

 

Clee Valley Railway (7mm/ft '09') Peter Leadley: A 15inch gauge miniature railway set in England during the early part of the 21st Century.

Colinton (4mm/ft 'P4') Alistair Dickson: The Caledonian Railway's Balerno branch to the south west of Edinburgh.

Colyer Street (4mm/ft '00') Roger Epps: A proposed North British Railway station in the heart of industrial Tyneside.

Cornwallis Yard (4mm/ft 'EM') David Barker: A fictitious goods depot on the GWR Plymouth Millbay branch in the mid 1930s.

Great Burden (2mm/ft 'N') Normanton & Pontefract MRS: A section of a (fictitious) east/west mainline located on the eastern side of the Pennines during the late 50s/early 60s.

Hartburn (4mm/ft 'EM') Ian Manderson: Set in 1962/3 it is assumed that the NBR built the railway linking Morpeth and Reedsmouth to go via Meldon, Hartburn and Longwitton.

I really, really, really, wanted to attend this, considering it's only about 5 minutes from me, alas, it isn't meant to be due to work on both days. :(

 

Hope it's a good one!

Visitors please note that roadworks are taking place on Anlaby Park Road North (the road past the venue), which means that it is closed at certain times on weekdays. It will be open on the Saturday and Sunday of the show, but I've noticed that the contractors are a bit lax at putting away their temporary signs when they've finished work for the day. So ignore any "no left turn" or "no right turn" signs into each end of Anlaby Park Road North.

 

UPDATE - the contractors have been asked by the Council to remove all restrictive signs on Friday evening.

 

Also, a trench has been dug across the venue entrance during this week, causing a slight ramp. Please be careful when entering the car park!

 

And now to polish the trophies ready for handing out on the Sunday....

 

UPDATE - trophies polished, and very nice they look too.

Show equipment extracted from the depths of the club rooms last night. All we have to do now is move it to Costello Stadium and erect everything - groan!!!

At least it's not raining.

Sorry to be missing it this year - always a quality show and well worth the trip.  Even more so if you can see Geoff Kent, the master of plastikard.

Spent a very pleasant day on the DEMU stand today. Happy to have shown a few little modelling wheezes to those who were interested and intrigued a few more with Catte Lane even if it wasn't actually operating. 

 

Thanks to Major Clanger for inviting the Society to attend.  :good_mini:

Arrived about 11.30am and ended up staying until about 4pm!!! Enjoyed it very much and met a few people I knew from days gone by. The show had a varied selection of traders supplying all those little detailed extras that one needs to bring a layout to life.

i sat in on a couple of demonstrations (soldering and weathering) which were very helpful and interesting.

All in all a super show and glad I made the trip from York.
